Pretty decent deal. I would ignore hdmi cable though. With these specs, I suggest using a DP cable.

HDMI included was for the inevitable question Stick Out Tongue

I have an older version ED34CKR and second this. DP works awesome to get the 100 Hz refresh rate and plays well with the Mac.

My take on the older version:
Great display - VA takes a bit to get used to (off center colors), but the curved screen shines here. Real estate is awesome for gaming and work / excel / window mess
Stand height - I could use a bit higher, but I guess it's risking stability for such a big screen. Besides, quite a few folks use a separate stand/mount, so might not be an issue
Speakers - Crap. Really sad - they should label these as get your own speakers (at least for the ED34CKR)

i own this. the DP gives 144hz the HDMI only gets max of 100hz. It takes like 3-5 seconds to get out of sleep mode. kinda annoying. I bought this to test out my first ultra wide experience. I'll probably return it. The sleep mode delay annoys me a lot

You should check out the curved monitors, they are awesome, leave those curbed ones where they belong, on the curb.

lol samesies. i havent even set it up yet. but i dont think that the LG would be worth it. $100 more, you would have to return the dark matter, etc.

I have the same. This was on Costco Black Friday special last year for $299 and a lot of us bought it then.

Over 8 months now and it's flawless. Gaming is on a whole new level. I mainly play CoD and Skyrim (with the ultrawide mod). I have a RX 5700 video card and my games can keep up around 120fps

No issues with the stand, etc. I'd highly recommend this anyday!!

The Samsung G5 Odyssey is a very good gaming monitor I hear.

I think they each have their pros and cons.... From my research the G5 is a lot better as a pure gaming monitor and 269 is a great deal.

However, if you think you are going to do a lot more productivity with some gaming in between, I would go for this Acer since I hear a lot of people say once you go curved ultrawide, you never go back hahah
